DIY: Lyrics on canvas wall art.

I know you have all seen this DIY many times but I have been wanting to try it myself for a while now.  So here it is. It is a mixture between A Beautiful Mess's version and Elise's version. I wanted to combine Elise's version which is messy and will always be one of a kind but ABM version that has a pattern/painting below it. I painted two different canvas one I did lyrics on and one I just painted with pretty pink colors. 
1. I used a canvas that I had already painted on. It was from a while ago and definitely needed something new. I used paint with water to make the colors blend well together. 2. After the paint was dry and was the way I wanted it to look. I used scrape-booking stickers to spell out a quote. I used the quote "This is our fate, I'm yours" from the Jason Mraz song I'm Yours. I love it. 3. Make sure the stickers are stuck down firmly. I used paint craft white to paint over the letters. And let it completely dry. 4. Once it was dry, I peeled off the letters. 5. Enjoy your beautiful and completely own of a kind creation. 
This has been one of my favorite DIY projects. I was pretty simple and easy and like I said above totally one of a kind. I am excited to one day put this up in my own home. I hope you enjoy.
love, Carlee
